The Ruggers Edge
EIRA is committed to developing the complete rugby player. For some, such as Titi Lamositele it may be finding them a place in a professional setting overseas.
To further assist our pre-college players EIRA has partnered with Rugby College Admissions Advisor, Karen Fong Donoghue, owner and founder of The Rugger’s Edge.
The Rugger’s Edge is the only resource providing college counseling services specifically for rugby players. Karen works with EIRA to provide our players with admissions help targeted to the rugby athlete. The goal is to make the college rugby search and recruitment process as enjoyable and stress free as possible and increase the likelihood that the student will attend a school where they will thrive.
